He'll bring it up.

I'm probably going to get the Xbox One with that being one of the reasons. Some of the things that they are expecting are pretty crazy, like this internet thing. I'm probably going to wait until its out and a year or so after before buying it. do research, let bugs get fixed, price drop, etc.

Mostly sticking with it because I don't have a reason to leave it.

The internet thing isn't really a big problem for me. Most of the time I don't really bring an xbox around to vacations. If I do, it will be my 360

I hope Microsoft can remove all those features in the future, assuming it's possible in the first place. I want to play future Halo titles.

I'm going to guess that they can fix things like that. It seems like they were able to do quite a bit to the 360 through updates and such. I'm actually counting on them doing just that.

Minecraft for the xbox one is also good to hear. Too bad 360 edition won't catch up to the PC.

I like the two guys who make these videos.

You're really gonna make me dredge through Kotaku's filth pit? Eargh... Fine, be right back.

*Goes to Kotaku, dredges through page after page after refreshed page of filth, skimming key words and avoiding the cancer that is other Kotaku posts.*

A lot is lost in translation, but this is the closest thing I found.

I was skimming either yesterday or the day before and followed several links and went on an internet journey and found something with a major Kotaku person apologizing to a pariah. I promise you, it's there, I just don't know WHERE. If I find it, I'll let you know. Until then, this is pretty much the exact same thing; Kotaku telling gamers to level out and all be on the same side in this.

I can paraphrase if you want a TL;DR on the page.

"People are saying that "You can still play offline if you sign in once a day" and things like that without a hint of irony. People are defending the Xbone without realizing that it's basically everything bad in video games at the same time. DRM? Gamers wince, grit their teeth and bear it, they bear it because they love games. But it's become silly how many things we simply have to bear to just PLAY A GAME. Microsoft needs to stop biting the hand that feeds it- and the hand is us. They are not treating us with the respect we are "Entitled" to as consumers and it's time we let them know that."

Followups to this were several apologies to people Kotaku demonized that one time. Several comments on the page also list the irony of Kotaku calling other people "Entitled" while at the same time posting this page which is only a couple sylables away from "Down with the system." They are there if you want to dredge through it. I'm done dredging.

Now don't say I never brought anything interesting to the table.

You know what I think? I think you wanted me to say I made it up so you can poke fun at me, well nuh uh, not this time. I'm well informed! I thunk good this time!

But in all seriousness, what is it you thought? It sounds interesting; whatever it is.

Ooh, just found something interesting. It's from Gamespot, another jab at Xbone.

http://www.gamespot.com/e3/xbox-one-terms-of-service-prevent-class-action-suits-6410038/

Basically, you know how the Xbone fucking stares at you, can see in the dark, can make out emotions in pitch darkness and has a camera on as the default option? Well, guess what?

You can't fucking sue them for ANY REASON, no class action lawsuits. What, you don't want them staring at your living room, looking at EVERYTHING you do and possible accidental nudity? Well fuck you, you are basically signing your rights away by even purchasing this fucking thing.

US ENTITLED GAMERS, HUH?! ALL HAIL MICRO$OFT.

But seriously, if anyone here buys an Xbone I'll personally punch you in the face.

The Xbone must fail so this ridiculous shit can end.

(Yes I am also aware that PS3, Valve and various other companies are "immune" to suing as well, but they don't stare at you. Invasion of privacy is a very easy thing to sue for- and you cannot do it against Micro$oft.)

Relax. Microsoft will realize the faults in the xbox one. and hopefully release a new model that will apeal more to gamers. And you freaking out over something that can be turned off. Hell, just unplug the kinect, and all your worries about striping in front of your xbox will be gone.

I hope Microsoft is listening to the complaints people are having. I wonder though if that is going to happen before or after the sale figures come out.

But that's the main problem, Doc, why do we need to wait for a new model that will appeal the gamer? Why not just listen to the gamer right now instead of doing everything wrong? It's just plain baffling.

Because Microsoft won't notice it untill it's slaped in the face in the form of sales.

Not even if Microsoft realizes it's faults that no one likes? And releases a new model that won't need internet connection, and also remove that used game policy? Besides, even if I did by an xbox one, you in what army?

Hellz no. I need a expensive paper weight.

I dunno though, CoD, Dragon Age 3, Assassins Creed 4, and I think there is a new Mass Effect in the work. I don't have a reason to switch.
